According to their agencies, they broke up in the beginning of last December. The two had met back in 2010 through the SBS drama “Life is Beautiful,” where they played a couple.
They first announced that they were involved in a romantic relationship together through the cable program “On-Site Talk Show Taxi.”
In 2011, when Nam Sang Mi was busy starring in the MBC drama “Lights and Shadows,” rumors that the couple were going to get married were spreading like wildfire yet their respective agencies stated that those rumors were false. When Nam Sang Mi was having a VIP premiere for her movie “The Peach Tree,” Lee Sang Yoon came and gave her a huge bouquet of flowers, which brought huge envy to those who were present at the premiere. However, due to each of their busy schedules, the two made the decision to part their ways and to become once again friends for the first time in a year and a half.
A graduate of Korea’s best university, Seoul National University, Lee Sang Yoon is currently reaching great popularity through his role in the drama, “My Daughter Seo Young,” where he plays the strong-hearted Kang Woo Jae.
On the other hand, with the release of “The Peach Tree” movie that she starred in as Park Seung Ah in October, Nam Sang Mi met the audience once again with the one-act KBS drama “Like A Miracle” at the end of 2012.
